The work of the Interdisciplinary Research Group on the Territories of Extraction (IRGTE) focuses on three research themes: governance, socio-environmental conflicts, and Indigenous rights. Our members work on a variety of issues, such as the criminalization of dissent, indigenous rights claims, artisanal and small-scale mining, corporate accountability, and social movements. They work in different geographic regions, such as North America, Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
